The gourd is a canteen variety. The bottom has been sanded flat allowing is to stand as shown in the picture. The lower portion is stained red with the natural texture of the gourd showing through. The silver portion has been carved, sanded smooth and then painted silver and then antiqued with black. There's a lovely turquoise piece recessed into the gourd completing this lovely piece.
